Peter Reddick Bursary Award 2024-2025

We are offering a bursary worth £2500 to a new graduate to support their practice in relief printing. We are particularly interested in graduates who are innovative and experimental whilst using the oldest of print techniques. The bursary is for one year and awards membership to the studio with full support in studio and online, learning opportunities and professional development and an end of bursary award exhibition. 

This award is an intellectual and practical challenge where we support the candidate with a flexible and adaptive approach. 

The last three years have impacted on everyone and as the world moves forward in uncertain ways we hope the successful candidate will have the ability to address the uncertainties of the time by how they approach and manage their work and deliver a final exhibition in September 2025. 

All our past awardees have all stated that the opportunity to develop over the year is unrivalled, and the recognition by Spike Print Studio was a huge part of their career development – a solo and bursary are seen as significant on their CVs.
